Daft Punk is launching their new album Random Access Memories at the Wee Waa Show, a rural agricultural fair held annually in Australia, on May 17th. The cover for the album features the duo’s signature helmets, which have evolved over the years as part of their ever-changing visual identity.

The poster below was created a couple of years ago by Agent RayBans and posted on the Daft Punk fansite The Daft Club. It charts the history of Daft Punk’s helmets, providing an overview that shows how they have changed:

Visual History Of Daft Punk’s Helmets

In the late 90’s Daft Punk went from wearing simple Halloween novelty masks to complex robot helmets. These featured intricate displays capable of displaying text and syncing images and patterns to music.

Their helmets have changed a lot over the years, and when they became involved with the film Tron Legacy the special effects company Ironhead Studios made them new designs for their cameo and subsequent public appearances. These featured a dull metal finish and white/light blue LEDs.
